Our Planetary Future
December 10, 2013
While I value The Planetary Society for the present knowledge that it imparts to me, I value it even more for the value of the future knowledge that it shall impart to those much younger than I and those soon to be born on this planet. That is why I make modest monetary contributions to SETI, the excellent work on asteroid discovery and collision avoidance, Lightsail, and other projects of The Planetary Society. I believe that discovery is the essence of our humanity.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
